L’Oreal Paris Superliner Black Lacquer : Review and Video

Hello Darlings,

I am feeling fresh and happy as I had been to a much needed vacation to Himachal Pradesh. The snow covered mountains, cool breeze, the great company cleansed my soul.

In this post, I am going to review a product which I used during my holiday. That’s one of the products I can’t just live without – eyeliner.

This eyeliner is a free gift with a magazine I had subscribed for. Let’s see how this eyeliner worked/not worked for me.

Brand :
L’Oreal Paris

Product name :
L’Oreal Paris Superliner Black Lacquer

Price :
600 INR for 6 ml

Shopping Link

Shelf life :
2 years. 6 months, once opened

Colour :

Black

What Company has to Say About the Product:

L’Oreal Super Liner Black Lacquer Liquid Eye Liner has a special sponge tipped pen for the creation of fine lines or thick, sultry flicks. Colour is applied with precision and ease and dries without smudging. Ophthalmologically tested.
Benefits:
Precision Waterproof Eyeliner route.
Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
Pen accuracy: Net and fast track ultra.

Packing:
It comes in a sturdy plastic tube packing. Golden fonts on a jet black tube makes it slightly attractive. Tube is quite thin so makes it perfect to carry it around. Also the cap is quite tight that makes not to worry about any spillage.

Applicator:
As the company says, it is a sponge tipped pen applicator. It is thin enough to draw fine lines.

Colour:
It is a deep black colour.

Fragrance:
Yep this liquid eyeliner has a pungent smell. But it fades away very quickly.

Finish:
It gives a glossy finish when applied. But once settles, t’s more of matte finish.

Drying Time:
Unlike many other liquid eyeliner I have used, this one dries off really quick when applied.

How Does it Feel On Eyelids?
One thing that made upset about this liner is that it is too sticky. Once it settles, it becomes so sticky and makes eyelids stiff. I had hard time opening my eyes completely. It was like something was pulling my eyelids.

Does this smudge?
Yes it did..!! Usually the liquid eyeliners don’t smudge, they get flaky and fall off. But somehow this one smudged. Trust me I had hard time to fix it.

PS : I had applied this eyeliner on a hot day where I was in hot sun for most of the time. So I am assuming that it melted and created unwanted panda look..!!!

Waterproof?
No..! It can be easily removed with just water.

Things I Liked:

  • Travel friendly packing.
  • Applicator is nice and good to draw fine lines.
  • Deep black colour looks nice.
  • Dries really quick.

Things I Didn’t Like:

  • It feels very sticky on lids. This makes it very uncomfortable to wear.
  • Not waterproof
  • It smudged.
  • Ingredient list is not mentioned.
  • Some might find it pricey.

Is This On My Repurchase List?
No.

Will I recommend?
I have tried and loved different eyeliners from L’Oreal Paris. But for the fact that I was not comfortable wearing this particular eyeliner, I don’t think I will recommend this to anyone.

Here is the demo 😁 Where I have tested the product for smudge proof and waterproof claims.

OOTD : Inspired by The Movie Stree

Do you like horror films??? I don’t. I just can’t watch them, especially not in a theatre. But, recently with lots of courage, I did watch a horror comedy movie in theatre – Stree. Comedy was so good that it did balanced that horror stuffs. Phew.

Thing I loved the most, apart from the individual performances, is the makeup and costume of the heroine.

Shraddha Kapoor is seen in ethnic attire with simple smudgy eye makeup.

The most interesting part of the entire look is her silver nose pin. This has definitely set a trend among girls.

So, for my birthday this year, one of my friends from work gave me this beautiful nose pin. I loved the hand written note the most, needless to say I am old schooled. 😊

My friend is such sweet soul, she gifted this and said try it out and do post on blog. I love those people who encourage others to pursue their passion.

So, with all love and warmth, here is the look I created. Which is of course inspired by the movie Stree.

Stree Inspired OOTD

This kurta set is from Myntra. Black is my favorite (it’s an open secret now) and it’s something mystery, which suits the theme of Stree. 😁

Stree Inspired OOTD

The floral printed pallazos have these pockets. They are so comfy to wear…!!!

For footwear, my all time favorite open heels from 20 dresses.

Stree Inspired OOTD

As I said, eye makeup and accessories are been given good importance to create this look.

Stree Inspired OOTD

For eyes, I did a smudged eye look. I have created a YouTube video for it. You can watch it here.

Stree Inspired OOTD

Since eye makeup was quite prominent, I chose to keep the lips neutral. I have applied these lipsticks from the brand the body shop.

Stree Inspired OOTD

Accossories – Nose pin is a birthday gift. 😊

Chose oxidized bangles and earrings to go with the oxidized silver nose pin.

The black statement finger ring is from Forever 21.

Wet n Wild MegaSlicks Lip Gloss in Shade Great Coral-ation Review

Hello,

Me and my never ending lipstick collection…!!!

I know… I know… I have told you that I won’t buy anymore lipstick or glosses…. But, it’s me…!!! I can’t stop myself from trying out different lipsticks and glosses…!!!

Hey, Plus I have a valid reason to shop. I am a Nykaa Prive member. Wanna know the advantages of being that??? Check out the story here.

Since glitters and sparkles are my current favorites, I have fall in love with glosses all over again. Adding to my lip gloss collection – here is the new bee to my box. A beautiful gloss from the brand – Wet n Wild.

Let us know whether I am going to recommend this to you or not.

Brand:

Wet n Wild

Gloss Name :

Wet n Wild MegaSlicks Lip Gloss

Cruelty Free???

Yes. A happy bunny on a product makes me happy. None of our furry friends were hurt for making this product.

Price:

250 INR for 5.4 g

Shelf Life:

3 Years

Shades Available:

There are 6 girly shades available.

  • Sweet Glaze (Baby Pink)
  • My Cherry Amour (Blood Red)
  • Great Coral-ation (Peach)
  • Sinless (Lightest shade of Pink)
  • Crushed Grapes (Dark Pink)
  • Cherish (Light Orange)

The Shade I picked:

Great Coral-ation

Packing:

It comes in a plastic tube. The color combination is cute and girly. The cap is black, tube is peach and there is a white strip to separate these two colors. Honestly, it do reminds me of some school uniform color combo.

Plus points about the packing are – apart from being a travel friendly packing, it also helps in differentiating the shade. The tube color is been colored similar to that of the gloss inside it. Thus, if you purchase all the shades, you don’t have to pick the shade after checking the gloss inside it. You can differentiate just by looking at the lip-gloss tube.

Applicator:

Its a typical sponge applicator. Its soft and edgy. Makes application easier.

Fragrance:

It smells like a candy. But nothing like any fancy sweet candy.

Texture:

Its creamy. Gloss is neither sticky nor heavy.

Color Payoff:

Honestly, it doesn’t really looks like a peach gloss on my lips. Let me just remind you my lips are bit pigmented.

If you are looking for a proper peach lipgloss, na this is not the one for you.

But yes, if your expectations regarding color pay off is less, this will turn out to be a good lip gloss.

This adds a hint of peach color to your lips along with nice shine. It did look nice. The best part about the lip gloss I can say is it’s moisturizing quality. It did not dry out my lips. In fact it did hydrate them.

So, as company also says – I used this with some of my lipsticks which I don’t find hydrating. Just apply a layer of your favorite lipstick shade. Over it, apply this gloss. It looks amazing anddd keeps your lips moisturised.

Is It Transfer Proof???

No. In fact if it is any gloss, there is high chance that they do transfer.

Staying Power:

It stays on lips for 3 to 4 hours without food. But with food the glossiness disappears. A very mild tint remains on lips.

Pros of Wet n Wild MegaSlicks Lip Gloss:

  • Affordable.
  • Six variety of shades to chose from.
  • Travel friendly packing.
  • Moisturizing.
  • Adds nice shine to lips.
  • Good quality applicator.
  • Doesn’t feel heavy on lips.

Cons of Wet n Wild MegaSlicks Lip Gloss:

  • Not Transfer proof.
  • Color pay off is not that great. Which is con for pigmented lips.
  • Staying power could have been more.

Will I Repurchase???

Ummm No, not the same shade. I would like to try different shades in this range. Loved the idea of using it with lipsticks to create a moisturized, shiny look. Its a good deal for the price we are paying after all.

Will I Recommend???

If you have pigmented lips, looking for a gloss – skip it. If you are looking for moisturizing lip gloss and full coverage is not your concern, go for it.

This Eyeliner With Smudger from L’Oréal Paris – Great Pick or Not…!!!

Hey,

You know there are advantages of being a shopaholic… 😉 By spending more than 5k per year on Nykaa, I have become a Prive member. I love the queen tiara icon we get against our name in Nykaa account. It’s like we are being crowned as a shopaholic queen. 👸

So, perks of being a member is, we get different discount coupons. A birthday gift on our birthdays. I might have missed mentioning this, but I had received a beautiful makeup bag last year on my birthday, from Nykaa.

Since I have 6 coupons for free shipments which are valid till this month end, the shopping Addict gal inside me thought of making most of it. Hence ordered items below 500( Amount eligible for free shipping) separately. Mostly I have ordered my favorite makeup i.e. Eye makeup products.

Today I’m gonna review one of those products. Eyeliner from L’Oreal Paris.

What made me choose this one??? It has smudger with it. Which we can use to smudge the kajal or eye liner to get Smokey looks.

Let’s see whether I liked it or not…

Brand:

L’Oreal Paris

Name:

L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Le Smoky Eyeliner

Price:

650 INR ( I got it for 480 something, after discount) for 1.2 g.

Click On Below Image to Shop

Shelf life:

28 months.

What Company Claims:

Packing:

It comes in a typical eye pencil packing. Color combination of the pencil being black and gold, it does look attractive. What makes it different is it is dual sided. One side the kajal and the other side is smudge brush or smudger.

Both sides have tight lids or caps, which are transparent. This makes it easy to differentiate between the kajal and smudger without having to open the caps to check.

Shades Available :

There are six shades available in this range.

  • Black Velour 201 (Black)
  • Mystic Grey 202 ( Dark Grey)
  • Brown Fusion 204 (Brown)
  • Stormy Sea 207 (Teal Green)
  • Antique Green 209 (Green)
  • Purple Dream 211 (Purple)

Shade I Picked:

Mystic Grey 202 – It’s a dark Grey. Falls towards black shade.

First stripe is without using a smudger. Second with couple of strokes of smudger.

Texture:

Creamy soft. Glides softly. Finishing is a matte finish one.

Smudger:

It is made up of soft rubber. A dome shaped smudger helps in smudging the kajal on waterline and eyeliner over the eyelids. Since this is soft, it glides along the waterline easily and does the job fairly well. Hence it saves your money in terms of buying a separate smudger brush.

My Take:

After looking at the reviews on Nykka, written by the customers who had bought this before, I finalized this one. It had worked on them. At least they have said it did. But it’s not the case with me.

As I said, it’s creamy thus making it easy to apply. The smudger is soft yet efficient. But, what turns me down is its staying power. It smudges very fast and looks bad. There is no way I could keep it smudge free.

If the eye product bleeds or smudges I don’t think it stands any chance to be a good product.

Good thing is the smudger. This works well. You can use this brush to smudge any other kajal or kohl, which you want to play with in order to create Smokey eye looks.

Things I liked About L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Le Smoky Eyeliner:

  • Packing is travel friendly.
  • Smudger is quite useful.
  • Creamy texture.
  • As company claims, removal of this product from eyes is easy.

Things I Didn’t like About L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Le Smoky Eyeliner:

  • Pricey.
  • Smudges a lot.
  • Claim of ‘long lasting’ is not true. Staying power is very less.
  • Retractable pencil would be more useful as the sharpening pencil results in wastage of product.

Will I Repurchase??

No. It didn’t work for me. Hence a bigg No. Instead of spending this much, I will buy some other eye products I know which cost less and does amazing job.

Will I Recommend??

Umm not really. On the basis of my experience, no.

Easy way to do Winged eyeliner…!!!

Hey my beautiful readers…

How is the day treating you all..???

I don’t feel I am perfect at drawing perfect winged eye liner but , would love to share my tried and tested tips with you guys. I will be glad if you find them useful.

So, today I will be sharing some of the tips I follow while creating winged eye liner look.

You must have heard saying “Do not ask a girl with winged liner, why she is late…!!!”  wink Yes, it is an art… but not a rocket science for sure…  Practice makes you perfect.

Let’s get started then…

I have classified it into 3 steps.

  1. Preparing eye lids:

To begin with, we need to prepare the base. Most of us are blessed with the oily lids. Oily lids make the liner smudge bit fast. Hence, we need to make eye lids oil proof in order to make our liner last longer.

For this, you need a good Eye Primer. It evens out skin tone, absorbs oil and prepares the base.

If you do not have one, don’t worry… Even setting powder will do the job. You can use any setting powder of your choice, which matches your skin tone.

You might find this link useful to find a perfect setting powder for you.

Prepare your eye lids by applying setting powder on them.

  1. Drawing the liner along the eye lash line.

Most of you guys, especially the beginners find it really difficult to draw line along the eyelash line. Let me make this step a bit easier one. All of you guys have must played ‘connecting the dots’ game at some point of time in your life. So, lets bring back that memory here. laugh

 

Draw dots over the eyelids along the eye lash line.

2

 

Now just connect them.

3

 

Phewww…!!! Done with the tricky part… right..??

 

 

  1. Drawing the wing:

You must have loads of cards, like debit/ credit/ shopping etc. Pick one of them. Place the card in such a way that, the end of your eye brow and corner of your eye are in a straight line as shown below.

4

 

Draw a line starting from the eye’s corner towards eyebrow end along the side of the card. Length of the line is totally of your choice. I prefer a small wing. If you guys want to try dramatic long wing look, draw a bit long line.

5

 

Now, drawing the triangle.

Draw a line from the eye lash line (which you drew in the previous step), to the tip of the line drawn using the card few minutes back to draw a triangle.

6

 

 

Fill in the triangle.

7

 

 

 

 

Wow…!!! You are done drawing winged liner…!!!  good job

8

Couple of mascara swipe, and you are ready… 🙂

 

Some more tips I would like to mention:

  1. For beginners, I would suggest using gel eyeliners. Once you get used to drawing lines perfectly, you can start using liquid eye liners. Handling liquid eye liners is a tricky part since they are runny.
  2. Do not leave any gap while drawing line along eye lash line on the lid.
  3. Keep ear buds handy to erase the tiny mistakes that tend to happen while drawing lines.
  4. Most important, do not lose patience/ hope. Even I am not so perfect. It needs a lot of practice to be a pro.
  5. You can apply kajal to the water line.
  6. Applying white/ n**e eye liners on the water line will give you a fresh eye look.

 

Did you find this helpful???

 

Do try and let me know your experience.

 

Happy weekend you guys…!!!!
